Formal submissions on the Long Term Plan 2015-25 have now closed.
The Plan outlines the Council’s proposed work programme and services for the next 10 years, and options for dealing with an estimated $1.2 billion shortfall resulting from the earthquakes.
People who asked to address Councillors in person about their submissions will do so at public hearings held between 11 – 23 May.
The public hearings are also open to anyone who wants to give verbal feedback on the Long Term Plan. To book a time to speak at a public hearing, call the Council on (03) 941 8999
We are also continuing to collect public feedback on the Long Term Plan via Facebook. Although they do not count as formal submissions, Councillors will receive a summary of these online comments to take into consideration when they adopt the Plan at the end of June.
